Fifa UNDER 20 women's worldcup qualifiers 2018:falconets beat Basetsana

Nigeria's Under-20 girls, Falconets, will depart from their final training camp in Tirol, Austria on Thursday, August 2 for the FIFA Under-20 Women's World Cup, with high level of confidence after scoring seven goals and conceding none in two friendly games. The 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup silver medallists hammered Austrian Women League top flight team, FC Wacker Innsbruck 4-0 in their final pre-tournament friendly in Tirol, Austria on Saturday, with a brace from top scorer Rasheedat Ajibade and one each from Adebisi Saheed and Chinyere Igboamalu. A few days earlier, the Nigerian girls had spanked another Austrian top flight side, FC Bergheim 3-0. Saturday's match in Tirol was also watched by Nigeria's Youth and Sports Minister Solomon Dalung. Ajibade, who plays for FC Robo Queens of Lagos and also featured at the last tournament in Papua New Guinea, top- scored for Nigeria in the African qualifying campaign and is heavily touted to dazzle the world in France next month. Nigeria's Asisat Oshoala was the top scorer and best player at the 2014 finals in Canada, where the Falconets finished as runners-up behind Germany.
